Konami CEO Fumiaki Tanaka has said Konami is anticipating 3 million in worldwide sales for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Speaking to Nikkei BP, Tanaka claimed the game got off to a good start.

“We’re targeting more than 3 million copies worldwide,” he said. “In Japan, since released on April 29, sales figures have been favourable.”

Tanaka went on to say that he hopes this momentum will continue in Europe and the US, although he’s sure it will due to the series’s popularity in the west.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker launched in the US and Europe earlier this month, to high critical acclaim.
